Remember when the city started rolling out Healthy San Francisco and the Golden Gate Restaurant Association was all, "We don't want to help restaurant employees defray medical costs?" and the Bush administration was all, " Oh, good catch. We don't have a lot on our plate right now, so we'll try to eff shit up for uninsured San Franciscans?" Well, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the challenges today.

Background here and here, and a recent Sucka Free City about a woman who thinks they got the axe for trying to hold their employer to their responsibilities under Healthy SF. Go here to read the court's opinion.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
